Synopsis

An ambitious intern. A perfectionist executive. And a whole lot of name calling.

Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard.

Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative—completely infuriating—creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules—or outright smash them—if it means he can have her. All over the office

As their appetites for one another increase to a breaking point, Bennett and Chloe must decide exactly what they’re willing to lose in order to win each other.

Originally only available online as The Office by tby789—and garnering over 2 million reads on fanfiction sites—Beautiful Bastard has been extensively updated for re-release.

Beautiful love story :)
July 10th, 2015
I didn't know what to expect from this book, and in the beginning I was sure it was just going to be rage sex all the way through. Then as you start to get to know the characters more the book turns into a very sweet sexy story.

Between the laugh out loud brazen humor and the thick sensual heat leaping off the pages, I would suggest that you clear your schedule before starting this book. Because once you start, you won't be able to stop until the end.

I'm such a big fan of the Beautiful Series. You get really into them and the fact that the series are all interconnected which I always like, I don't know why. It just gives you an insight in each characters lives. I think I'm rambling. I highly recommend this book and also the other books in this series. I'm currently trying to collect them all on Kobo.

I generally am reluctant to read 1st pov because romances is a journey of two people. Switchback between hero and heroine made for a fuller read. If you like alpha male and sassy heroines and a hot read, this is for you.

The trouble with ebooks is that there is so many books to read, and I am constantly looking for my next read before I'm even finished. Not this one, held my attention right to the end. I couldn't care what else I was going to read next, I didn't want this book to end. Gorgeous strong characters, amazing sexual chemistry - the next book in the series, is my next book to read.
